Crowdy Bay National Park

Crowdy Bay National Park offers an abundance of wildflowers, birds and animals, bushwalking, swimming and fishing in 8,022 hectares of coastal plains. There are long sweeping beaches north and south, extensive wetlands, rainforest pockets and coastal heath featuring beautiful wildflowers.

Australian author Kylie Tennant spent time living and writing here, and her hut which was used as a writing retreat has been restored and maintained.

Walking trails include the cliff walk, rock platforms and stony beaches and offer sections with eroding rock formations and towering rock spits. At low tide you can explore the rocks and pools below the cliffs. There's good fishing, bird watching and fascinating headland walks with abundant wildlife.

Car-based and caravan camping is available at Diamond Head, Indian Head, Kylies Beach and Crowdy Gap Cultural Camp. Camping fees apply. Bring your own drinking water as it is not available within the park. Firewood sold on site.
